The WWE has came to a time where they finally announced the WWE Network. They have answered a lot of questions that have been asked for along time. They answered how much it will cost. They answered on what platforms it will be on. They answered what they will content will be on the WWE Network as speculated. And they mentioned how it will work. In case you missed the coverage that has been buzzing or you are curious in reading my review here is what they discussed at their announcement in Las Vegas, Nevada.
First, they mentioned that it will be a Online Streaming site a 24/7 service. You could go back to the programing any time if you missed it and it reminds you of future programing.
As for programming, It will feature new shows, NXT, WWE Superstars, a replay of Raw and Smackdown, Old contents from former wrestling shows from other promotions, Old pay per views from WWE, WCW, and ECW. Also, the finale, it will feature all 12 Pay Per Views including Wrestlemania. And I'm sure I might be missing other material they have.
They are taking a gamble and are revolutionizing the way they do things. They didn't say they are getting rid of the pay per views on TV, but they did mention the price and for all they offer they are giving it away for $9.99 a month. And for all of what they offer it is worth it and a steal.
The launch date for the WWE Network is February 24, 2014 at 11:05 PM on Monday after Raw.
This seems like a revolutionary concept and it will be the new wave of the future.
1984 was a year that changed how wrestling was done. Vince McMahon started to utilize Cable TV and marketing with his main man Hulk Hogan and Hulkamania. It revolutionized how sports entertainment started to operate. It took wrestling out of the dark ages.
Since then, 30 years later about almost 30 years to the day when Hulk Hogan beat the Iron Shiek for the WWE title, on January 8, 2014, they announced the launch of the WWE Network.
It is the first network of it's kind mainstream wise to be online. There hasn't been a network to do this and it's a gamble, but a gamble that might pay off. They could change the way of entertainment is done for the internet.
WWE has come along way from where it started and now it could start a new trend in entertainment. Vince has had ideas and with this network he utilizes all the effort of wrestlers from the past who have worked to that moment. Vince might have clawed his way to victory, but he has succeed in his journey. The WWE Universe has him to thank for all that he has accomplished.
Thank you, Vince.
